Here is a little bit about me: So for about a month now ive been deaf. I was hard of hearing before (mild), but one day i woke up profoundly deaf. My doctors don't know how this happened and its baffling all of them. Fortunately for me, this is the best time in my entire life that this could've happened. Im currently a junior in high school and i started taking asl class this year. On top of that, i already started considering going to either Galluadet or NTID to continue learning asl. Most of my friends know ASL and my school has the most deaf students in our county. I really couldn't have gotten a better situation to suddenly go deaf. Im not really looking for a fix though, i feel like ive never been happier. Cochlear implants have been offered a lot, and i don't blame people for getting them. i think its great what they can do, but personally, the idea really scares me. im trying really hard to learn asl as fast as i can so that i can start communicating again. Which is why i joined this website. Im looking for a place to go to with questions about this entirely new world that i just fell into. If i posted any of this in the wrong place or wrong way, sorry.
